works. obviously the big story is the climate story and what happened in copenhagen a few weeks ago. i have been astonished watching the globals then after the copenhagen meeting. what happened there is perceived completely differently in europe than it is here and in utterly differently in india then it is in europe, so if you track the flow of blogs and columns that are coming across on this, the assessment ranges from catastrophe to success. my sense of the story is there were actually to copenhagen meetings. there was a formal treaty negotiation that has been going on a essentially since the united states framework convention on climate change was ratified by 190 some nations back in the early 1990's and culminated in copenhagen, and there was a very brief 12-hour head of state negotiation that took place at the end of the copenhagen meeting. the first negotiation, the formal one, failed. the second one, i will talk about that a little more in a moment but i want to give you some background to understand what was happening there. every discussion of international climate change neg
such as spike its coverage not just copenhagen but it is going up and up and it seems we're doing something right and that is because the staff is so committed to speaking to journalists were in the old days they would sit in the office and do research. they are still doing that now but now they are more willing to talk to the press and that makes me happy also be cuss number one, we have a tremendous communications staff is an honor to work with it is like madmen without the cigarettes and booze. we have a leadership from the first-rate bert -- board fell lets us do what we want to do just like bloomberg president and steve ross miami dolphins owner, and al gore and i can go on. third we have a president who, for years, has been telling our staff which is growing to communicate and do it well. it is great to be with you and our great staff. before i call up jonathan lash to speak just a couple of logistical things. turnoff yourself of. he will speak half of the times "60 minutes" then open it up to answering your questions. you have myself end jessica over there in the black will have micr
those are not the number one issues for them. why is it important to flight to copenhagen, not once but twice? so i'm not saying that to be smarty, so much as i am asking question, why aren't we listening to people when they say they are starting for jobs lexa they're looking for economic rebounds. why do we look at the 16 million plus women in this country who currently owns all or part of a small business, and think of the untold millions of other american women who would love to harness their entrepreneurial spirit and create a little bit of a nest egg in flexibility and ownership for their small businesses? why can't we allow them just to flourish rather than try to suffocate them from the beginning? and so i want to read some of these numbers do you. i'm looking at over 30 crosstabs right here, and we compiled this from a number of national and publicly released poll so that the sample size is taken from over 3000 people in each of the three month periods between january 2009 and january of 2000. over a full year now. president obama's approval ratings have declined among every
into these problems that he didn't necessarily need to get into. it's a bit like, for example, the trip to copenhagen to push for the olympics in chicago that was doomed. they obviously lost the first round of bidding on that trip. it's another thing where he doesn't realize the sort of office -- the way the office should be handled and still feeling his way out on those things. >> when you look at, you talk about that trip to copenhagen where he came back empty handed. you want to make sure if you're a president, you have a reasonably assured chance of success. but contrast where he is at home and where he was with, say, the copenhagen olympic announcement and where he was as a candidate when he gave that speech in berlin before those hundreds of thousands of people. how does so much change in a year? >> well, i mean, look, certainly one of the things that has changed overnight with the election of barack obama is the way we're perceived abroad. he had another high moment of the year was the historic speech that he gave in cairo. and he has done a lot of reaching out, reaching across the aisle, talk

and the countdown to copenhagen 15, which was such a great disappointment. we have now joined by lars vattenfhor. we heard earlier this week, of course, from the president talking about infrastructure, as well as there's big pressures on energy infrastructure at the moment, as well well. how are we, in the failure of copenhagen and the squeezing budgets, it's all about the budget being squeezed this week in europe in particular. how is that going to impact investment in europe in energy infrastructure? >> well, it's all about investment, you can say. and that i mean energy security. i mean climate change. i mean jobs, i mean growth. clearly, what has happened in copen hague.en or what did not happen in copenhagen means higher uncertainty, less investments and a delay. >> but all this pressure, as well, is on government budgets. you can't open a paper. and we talked to jean claude trichet yesterday, the greek prime minister, alistair darling in the uk, you can't open a paper without the discussion of governments having to get down their budget deficit. how is that going impact? >> i think it's going

a cnbc exclusive from copenhagen, denmark, is mr. lars sorenson. thank you very much for being here. >> good afternoon, mike. >> when will you launch this drug in the united states? is your sales force ready to hit the ground running? and which doctors will they be targeting? >> our sales force has been ready for months now. this approval process took somewhat longer than we anticipated. so we'll be launching within weeks. we will start out hitting the key opinion leaders, specialists and then broaden out gradually to include all gps in the u.s. >> mr. sorensen, which type 2 diabetics can go on victorza? can they be on other diabetes drugs at the same time or do they have to go off them and take it all by itself? >> vivtorza is a second line treatment for individual 2 diabetes that cannot control blood sugar which is on the most commonly used drug. this means that victoza can replace some of the other second line drugs that are currently being used in the u.s. it is an injectable but very powerful blood sugar-lowering drug with a lot of other benefits. >> mr. sorensen, why are you p
in copenhagen where you saw president obama having to wrestle with all these tensions. can you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions as the president blowing at diplomatic protocol, wrenching the copenhagen assembly out of its original approach and into something new and doing this not knowing if it was going to work. in the article, i wrote about an important moment for president obama and he would get to this one way or another. this would be in the summer of 1864 near the end of president lincoln's first term. he reelection campaign is going and it is not going well. in fact, he in of the political experts in the country think he is going to lose. furthermore they think he is going to lose to general mcclellan who will not pursue lankan score policies in the civil war. lincoln, at that point, is living with the idea that he said hundreds of thousands of young men to their deaths for a failed war. he will be known as the president to failed to hold the union together. he is getting up every morning with that knowledge, living with a wife who was, frankly at times, psychot
to cut emissions. he had a real seat at the table in copenhagen, and this is the story that he's been spending much of his time on. but in addition we also talked about global markets. i asked him about currencies today, how he's investing and he had some interesting things to say about the valuations in the stock market. how do you see things right now in terms of the environment, globally speaking and in the u.s. right now? where are we in the cycle? >> i think that the collapse of the depression was prevented. the collapse the financial markets was avoided or the off the life support actually worked so the markets are now stabilized. the premiums have shrunk back to normal levels. so that's -- that's fine. and the economy has begun to move forward. but it's only moving forward because it's pushed by the stimulus and that's particularly true in the united states. >> reporter: what are your thoughts on the president's proposals in the banking industry? >> well i'm very supportive. i think it's a step in the right direction. because the banking system has to be changed. this idea of a
that international approaches -- global governance on display in copenhagen -- offers the best chance for tackling such a problem in they were offering the best chance to deal with the climate and ecosystems. >> be we need to be able to price carbon as well as understand what the risk of return is. business will be able to unleash this entire potential for a new low carbon economy. it is absolutely critical that we get this deal. whether we get in copenhagen, that is uncertain but we will have a path forward. i think this is the best way forward in order to solve this problem. >> president obama has announced when he is going. he went with all the other leaders. what does this mean for the meeting? >> what we have seen over the past couple of weeks is certainly an increased expectation that we will get out of copenhagen. i think what obama has done recently by setting up a provisional target, by changing the arrival date towards the end of the session which is more important, also by offering some financial increased commitment to help developing countries. >> what do you think about the prospects
the phrase global governance tossed about on a binding treaty to come out of the meeting in copenhagen. we have to remember this is not simply about co 2 or whether it is or is not going to cause the end of the world as we no it. it is more control for international entities and international bureaucracies over the daily lives of americans and other nations' citizens. we have to go back to find the real science behind this if anybody can find the data thrown out. the reality becomes for americans this is not in your best interest. if there are going to be determinations made about the future of energy in the united states and an environmental policy it should be done by the people of the united states through their duly elected servants in congress because if they don't like what those people do they can throw them out. >> greg: time for one question briefly. you wrote something called we the people wide awake for the newest berth of freedom. what does that mean? >> a pamphlet that we put out. it is far smaller than your book but it also has pictures. >> greg: excellent. did did you draw t

the international perspective, was he as successful as he wanted to be going to copenhagen? guest: no, he was not as successful as he wanted to be, but he does given the fact that the u.s. had not adopted any kind of climate legislation. he was able to at least achieved one u.s. objective, which was set up a way the international community can see whether major emerging economies like china, india, brazil, permitting voluntary greenhouse gas emissions cuts they say they are going to be. but he did not achieve the overall goal that many americans and europeans were looking for, which was a binding international agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions. host: and the reason why he could not that the binding agreement -- was it because he could not get enough international cooperation, or is it just that they did not want to hear what he was trying to say? guest: it was a combination of things. part of it was because the u.s. had not acted on his own -- on its own, he could not commit the u.s. as the number two greenhouse gas emissions -- the matter in the world, to cut emissions. in additi

, such as the u.n. human rights council, and was recently the copenhagen climate change conference, which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, eye of common purpose, a common interest,, and governance. and yet the value of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th-century experience, with its repeated and dimmed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers for unable conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact, whose signatories incidently included germany and japan? it abolished war forever. and inserted a that the u.s. secretary of state won the nobel peace prize. sound familiar? but at least they ashley sign be useless treaty. obama got it for imagined useless treaty, most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the night it of obama can be seen in his most recent poll, the dramatic -- the most dramatic of which appeared on september 24, one day after obama sp
is the security of the citizens. >> thank you mr. speaker. given the disappointing finish to the copenhagen conference what action can my honorable friend tell us he will be taking in order to keep the momentum up on this absolutely vital task of climate change? >> mr. speaker, for the first time the world was able to agree that we should not have a climate change policy that did not address the problems of rising temperatures and the 2% limit was agreed by all countries. we also have agreement countries will notify what they will do by 2020 and they've got to do so by january 31st. we are obviously pressing countries to be in the position they can reduce the amount of gigatons in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from the mid 50's in 2020 to the mid 40's and there has been a great transparency achieved with every country agreeing to report what they are doing that we have not yet got the international duty that we need and we haven't yet got the announcement from all countries they support the 50% reduction by 2015. that is what is still to be done and i agree we must not talk to all tho
set the stage for further cooperation with china in preparation for the copenhagen conference on climate change. he discussed exchange rates and trade, clean energy, military to military exchanges, human rights and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons. we outlined the key accomplishments of the visit in a joint statement issued by president obama and president jintao on november 17th. it has been said before that in order to get china right, you have to get the region right. the united states is a vital contributory asian security and economic pross pirarosperity. our active presence promotes regional stability and security. we intend to deepen our engagement and strengthen our leadership in the region strengthening commitments to allies and partners and enhancing involvement in regional institutions. the secretary addressed these issues as well as our presence in the region in and important speech in honolulu yesterday. the president's trip to china democraten -- and the region demonstrated the importance we place on east asia, which remains vital to the u.s. security and p
of the 2-20 was the shape of the emerging world. i looked back to the scene at copenhagen where the president burst into the room, but who is in the room? brazil, india, china, what is the arrangement of these new power arrangements? secondly, looking forward to the end of his first term, what is it reasonable to ask of this president in shaping what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping -- >> what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping this presidency. >> i am not so sure that it is a post american world. -- post-american world. we aren't indispensable nation, -- we are an indispensable nation. in asia, i thought that the coverage of obama's relations with asia was poor. when he came back from asia, the prime minister of india came to the white house for a state visit and obama is effectively in certain the united states into haitian politics and recognizing the degree to which of the rising powers of asia turned to the united states for some kind of leverage and balance. . . obama seems to be moving toward this new alignment. personally, i think this rei
in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the country. wyoming has a huge amount. we have not even put pipelines for the n
, of course, to various parties such as the u.n. human rights council and the copenhagen climate change conference which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, the lack of common purpose, interest, and governance. yet, the failure of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th century experience? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact whose signatories included germany and japan that abolished war forever? it won kellogg the peace prize in 1929. sound familiar? at least he got it for an actually signed useless treaty. obama got it for the imagined it useless treaty's most notably the one he has been insisting on for universal nuclear disarmament. the deaths of obama's 98 internationalism can be seen in his pursuit of this deeply and serious blow. this occurred on september 24th, one day after his speech to the general assembly when he asked -- when he ostentatiously presided over the security council, the first time an american president has ev
of london or manchester, or copenhagen or paris. and so it's very hard than with the multiple theaters at play when we're talking about the terrorism threat of the 21st century, to say we're in one paradigm or the other. and i think one of the things we have failed collectively as an american society to do is to decide how we're going to deal with this threat. and to deal with it in a way that, not only appears legitimate perhaps to the international committee, but is it constitutionally legitimate. much of the debate in a prior administration surrounded the military commissions act and the military commissions, but i think the larger question of how to deal with known terrorist actors who are trained, connected to this international network, but against whom we may not have sufficient evidence to present in a criminal context or even a military commission context, what do you do about those threats. remained initiative and useful yesterday in the president's address where the president said, that with respect to the many detainees and ensemble, given the conditions on the ground in ye
of ambassadors in copenhagen were meeting at every session for the end of ramadan, and decided jointly to write a letter of protest also to the danish, they were not protesting the newspaper. in fact, weren't even really at protesting the 12 cartoons but their concern was the tone of debate regarding muslims in denmark, including some statements made by a minister, cultural minister, minister. the prime minister at the time of course as you probably know secretary-general of nato. eventually within, by october 25, the egyptian government informed the danish ambassador in cairo that the egyptian government intended to complain to the united nations about the danish government's failure to protect muslims in denmark. by december 7, 2005, a decision was made at a meeting of the organization of islamic conference, a 56 member state, organization, to promote trade against the denmark. through january and early february, political authorities in the middle east became involved, became aware of the conflict, papers starting writing about it. and by february and march, the global demonstrations broke o

manifestations. the united nations, the various parties, and most recently, the copenhagen conference, which demonstrated the fatuousness of such international structures. çóyet this seems to leave no lasting impression. we really have learned nothing from the early 20th-Ñicentury experience, from repeated and doomed attempts to regulate the capital shifts of the great powers. did we learn nothing from the kellogg pact that abolished war forever, with a certainty that one frank keller look at the nobel peace prize in 1929? sound familiar? but i believe kellogg actually signed a treaty. [laughter] obama got it over imagined useless treaties, like those insisted on for nuclear disarmament. the best of the internationalism can be seen in the pursuit of the global, the most dramatic instance of which occurred on september 24, one day after obama's speech to the general assembly where he ostentatiously addressed to the security council. obama had knowledge thadr iran had constructed a secret uranium enrichment facility. the french and british were urging him to use that study at the council to
instance, the president of the united states removes himself to copenhagen to bring home the chicago olympics. it removes himself to copenhagen for climate change. he removes himself to oslo to receive a prize, but he doesn't show up in berlin on the 20th anniversary of an event of biblical proportion, one that i'm sure most of us in the room would never imagine we would ever see. that shows you how he sees the world, reinforces that quotation. i mean, i could have used one of dozens. but the one i chose it from was the address of the general assembly, in which you can see his priorities. and to speak of the cold war divisions, sort of arbitrary and not to see how rooted they were in the fundamental values of the united states and the west, as cleavages of some obsolete conflict, is simply staggering. but it tells you a lot about his worldview. and i thought the berlin event was very, very telling. particularly, as you say, leaving out the great figures that reagan, thatcher, pope john paul, sharansky, sakharov, and others. gorbachev was the hapless caretaker. to his credit come he d
ahead. caller: are you aware of the president's -- the brazilian president's speech in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the c

the climate change summit in copenhagen. any thoughts to having some sort of anti-tourism summit? in the near future or future? guest: there is some speculation on that front. -- of some type of anti- terrorism summit. guest: there are some thoughts of that. someone in europe might decide to host a summit like that to show they're doing something. host: the last call from sego lily, texas -- seagoville. caller: i'm wondering why we're so concerned about this unkind of traffic. i will go to latin america or canada and come in to really do damage. i can't believe they don't do something about our borders before the start of this crap about the air traffic. another thing, why you having so many democrats calling in today? i have watched you for years. usually are pretty well balanced. host: sir? guest: i think the caller is pointing to our government not thinking of the box. it is a good question as to whether people can arrive from other places. i have not been any attacks coming from the south. there have been plots through canada. maybe we should look north as well, not just south. host: evan
's -- the brazilian president's speech in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the country. wyoming has a huge amount. we have not even pu
in pittsburgh. the g-20 agreed to phase out fossil fuel subsidies at copenhagen. for the first time all major economies accepted their responsibility to take future action. the president ago noled this is not enough -- acknowledged this is not enough and we'll continue our efforts to provide the leadership that is required in this important and challenging area. all of this is, of course, just the start. our challenge now is to sustain and build on the start that has been made this year. there are no shortages of challenges to test us, north korea, iran, arab-israeli peace, al qaeda and its affiliates in afghanistan and pakistan specifically, and around the world jeanly. so now let me turn very briefly to the afghan-pakistan strategy and exactly where we are today. in review of our efforts in afghanistan and pakistan this fall, the president asked some very difficult and tough questions, challenged assumptions and heard from every perspective and explored every option. most importantly, this was a review that never lost sight of those affected most by presidential decisions, and that's the me
the british prime minister paul them out for failing to live up to his promises in copenhagen about imposing a carbon tax. the president fully expected that his hundreds of supporters would stand in share while the justices remained seated and silent, unable to respond even after word. moreover, the president's speech was only released 30 minutes before the event, after the justices or already present." "the new york times" online is saying the justice alito was right on the substance issue, saying "not true" to how the president characterized the decision. but "the american prospect" on- line said that, but what i democracy, it is okay to -- "in democracy, it is okay to criticize public officials." good morning. caller: can you hear me clearly? host: we can. caller: excellent it might take on the dialogue between a twa jet went -- two in the two gentlemen here is that mr. president, if you do the research -- as political campaign was funded by a special interests. goldman sachs is one of his sponsors, if you will. the whole political process -- the judges, the selection process -- everythin
billion commitment to a host of humanitarian and reconstruction efforts. in copenhagen, it was japan and the prime minister that provided the most generous support for efforts in the developing world to deal with the adaptations that climate change will bring to the disadvantaged. -- and we have seen japanese support to haiti, communicated directly to the secretary when we were in hawaii. i think overall we've seen indications of this new government -- and we believe it will be critical in the coming months to make sure that our two governments are working closely together. you but clearly our issues that require more work and more consultation and from the u.s. government perspective, we're prepared to work with our japanese interlocketters. we've outlined what's our best way forward with the r.f.r. plan, and we expect those consultations with our senior japanese interlocketters will be continuing. i'll be leading a delegation to japan in about two weeks' time where we will continue those discussions going forward. i think the secretary and the prime minister wants to use next year
such as the u.n. human rights council. and most recently the copenhagen climate change conference. which demonstrated spectacularly the factualist of structures, the lack of common purpose, common interest and governance. the internationalist institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th century experience with its repeated and doomed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers through naval conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact who's signatories incidentally included germany and japan? that abolished war forever. an absurdity that won the u.s. secretary of state frank kellogg the nobel peace prize of 1929. sound familiar? but at least kellogg got it for an actually signed useless treaty. [laughter] >> obama got it for the merely imagined useless treaties. most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the depth of obama's naive internationalism can be seen in his pursuit of this deeply unserious goal. the most dramatic
